Well, it's commander, so it's slow and you can use lands that enter tapped and are budget friendly. Dismal Backwater , Dimir Aqueduct , Dimir Guildgate , Submerged Boneyard , Jwar Isle Refuge , Frost Marsh and Salt Marsh are budget. Fetid Pools , Underground River , and Sunken Hollow are also good options. Check out http://managathering.com/duallands/Dimir.html for more options.

As for mana rocks. You'll need them. Commander always needs them. I like Worn Powerstone , Thran Dynamo , Hedron Archive , Everflowing Chalice , and Astral Cornucopia . Dimir Signet is really good.

I gotta say that you need a Rise of the Dark Realms . It's a bomb.

I understand where DrkNinja is coming from, as efficiently tuning a deck means to lower the curve and optimally play cards that will do something the time you cast it, as if you don't have ways to cheat in spell it will be a dead card in your hand which is never a good feeling.

Don't worry Darkshadow327, if you like playing big spells like that than you just have to find ways to ramp up to be able to cast those spells as well as protect them. If you like big spells like Rise of the Dark Realms than add in a Boseiju, Who Shelters All to ensure that you will be able to cast those spells. Need a way to get that land will black as access to tutors and budget tutors to get you there as well as certain creatures to get you those lands like for example Weathered Wayfarer .

Finding the right balance in your deck is always the biggest thing when your tuning a deck, sometimes you have to bite the bullet if you want your deck to become more efficient and not use the high end spells to compromise. However at the end of the day, this is your deck so it's up to you how to build it and how you want to tune it for your playstyle! ^^

  • I've found that Ashen Rider is a good political tool since people don't really like their stuff exiled. It is a card to consider taking out though.

  • I've definitely been on the edge about Butcher of Malakir , I agree with you here

  • I've been on the edge about Extractor Demon too.

  • I like the "may" clause on Harvester of Souls , but it is definitely a card to consider replacing.

  • In a vacuum Knight of the Last Breath is definitely horrible. However, in this deck it can really work. Sacrificing something to just get a token out of it (along with any death triggers) is useful, and the low 4/4 stats are more than compensated for by the fact that it has Afterlife 4.

  • I do like Krav, the Unredeemed since it can help with many different areas of the deck.

  • Most of my tokens are white, which is why I have Light of the Legion . It is a card that have really been leaning towards cutting though.

  • Regna, the Redeemer is definitely expensive, but I do like token production and the fact that she can tutor for Krav. Definitely one that might not make the cut though.

  • Nomads' Assembly and Storm Herd synergize very well with the token theme, and the fact that all those tokens will gain me tons of life is worth it to me. To be honest since this won't be cEDH they aren't extremely expensive by commander terms, though Storm Herd is definitely pretty high on the curve.

  • Again, while it might be higher on the curve Rise of the Dark Realms won't be extremely hard to get to. Although, target recursion might be better in this deck.

  • With all the tokens I'm gonna get attacking will still be relevant, especially since the tokens dying can still trigger effects. Cathars' Crusade can help, it might not make it in though.

  • Divine Visitation is another card I've been on the fence about, it would probably be better in another deck.

  • While Sanguine Bond /equisite blood do combo, it's not one that I'm actively searching for. 99.999999999999% of the time they will end up being on their own.

  • Been on the edge about True Conviction and Grave Betrayal .

  • Sword of Light and Shadow just gives that extra lifegain and recursion, just have it in the "protection" category because I didn't know where to put it.

Lifeline is cool, I've never seen that before

Totally forgot about Razaketh and Sheoldred. I feel stupid now.

Bontu's will definitely do work

Teferi's Protection has been in and then cut more times then I can count, it is definitely staying this time though.

I've been considering Smothering Abomination , it would be good.

Oversold Cemetery is a really cool card.

Toxic Deluge is a good one, forgot about it too.

I really appreciate this! I'm sorry if it seems like I'm not accepting suggestions/criticism, I just like to provide explanations.


Thanks hkhssweiss!

I suggest you add some graveyard hate in case your opponents have a way to recur back their cards (Living Death, Scrap Mastery, Sun Titan, etc.), like Crook of Condemnation, Relic of Progenitus, Nihil Spellbomb or Leyline of the Void (if you have the $$$). You already have Bojuka Bog, so nice choice :). I love the Whip of Erebos and Phyrexian Reclamation to get back my own creatures and some instants or sorceries put them back directly (one-time only though): Cauldron Dance, Torrent of Souls, Rise from the Grave. Beacon of Unrest is very nice and versatile. If you have the budget, Sheoldred, Whispering One is very effective and Goryo's Vengeance can be useful. Shallow Grave, Animate Dead and Necromancy are other options too. For mass-reanimation, use Rise of the Dark Realms, Liliana Vess or Liliana, Death Wielder. If you like the discard theme, pretty much all specters have an ability related to that, but of course they aren't of the tribes you want with your commander. Also, if you play black, I think tutors are a must, because they are the best in the game since only Beseech the Queen reveals the tutored card in black (well, I think so). So Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Mastermind's Acquisition, Dark Petition, Diabolic Revelation, Increasing Ambition and the good old budget Diabolic Tutor are among options.

Stefouch how do you feel about Rise of the Dark Realms on the mainboard for the Horde deck? Makes a scary clock for the survivors to keep burning the bodies. Too scary?

ArchFline: I appreciate the tech! I’m not huge on Sundial of the Infinite mostly on account of having to end my turn just to save Chainer’s pets from exile. I have enough sac effects to ensure they’ll be okay in the long run.

Which leads me to...

dritchie: digging a lot of the suggestions. I used to run Disciple of Bolas but don’t anymore because if it’s my only critter (say, early game), it’s a dud. Geth, Lord of the Vault would be nice if I was relying on opposing graves (I aim to be a very self-sufficient Chainer deck due to various meta reasons) — same with Sepulchral Primordial and Rise of the Dark Realms, to a lesser degree. I don’t really want to play Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath mostly because, Daretti, Scrap Savant (in my Norin the Wary deck) and Teferi, Temporal Archmage (in my Aminatou, the Fateshifter build) aside, I don’t tend to like playing commander walkers in the 99. Desecration Demon gives opponents a choice to stop the thing which slows the game plan if abided. My opponent’s don’t tend to have a shortage of blockers or things worth sacking (yet not worth reanimating, oddly enough).

HOWEVER: I like It That Betrays as a consideration (and can do it in paper right now!), so I may take that into consideration soon.

Therefore, I am wondering what to cut for the following cards though (in order of priority): It That Betrays (since I own one already), Exsanguinate, and Contamination (these last two are lower priority because I don’t have them yet... truthfully I’d prefer Contamination before Exsanguinate but the latter is cheaper lol). Any ideas?

Since there is a graveyard theme going on then why not add Desicration Demon, Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath, Sepulchral Primordial Disciple of Bolas, It That Betrays Geth, Lord of the Vault Rise of the Dark Realms all really useful add power and stick with the sacrifice theme

I find it surprising that you don't have Debtors' Knell, Grave Betrayal, Rise of the Dark Realms, or Liliana Vess in here. They're good cards that help you while also taking advantage of your opponents.

However, now that I think about it you probably have had these suggested many times and there is a reason that they aren't in the deck.

I didn't really know what to suggest, so I hope that this was helpful.
